Since childhood, we have been dreaming about dinosaurs, placoderms, trilobites and all the other strange creatures that ruled the world before us. Today we are working with a huge network of great paleontologists around the world. With their help, we are able to reconstruct these strange deep time creatures.
But even today there are strange beings out there. Just about three quarters of Planet Earth is water - home to some of the strangest and most beautiful creatures on Earth. Microscopic organisms, invertebrates, sharks and whales do not easily preserve and are hard to stuff - so to show these wonders, model making is the solution. With help from our network of leading scientists, the newest digital technologies, ancient sculpting and casting techniques, we are able to celebrate the huge variety of life on Earth in our sculptures - whether it is a huge plankton model, a small whale or a prehistoric giant.
